    Could anyone offer some input on how I may go about researching the subject of gut harp strings. In other words, how they are manufactured and where. Thank you!

    Hi – you can check the back issues of the American Harp Journal published by the American Harp Society – I remember that some years ago there was a very in-depth and detailed article with pictures concerning the whole process of gut string manufacture – There was also a video from Salvi about their harp manufacturing process which also included a section on gut string production – check with Salvi for the video – you might also write to Bow Brand strings, or any other major string manufacturer, and ask for information –

    have fun –

    I think it’s Pirastro that has a video on their web site about the process. It might be on YouTube as well.
